A slice of lime backlit by the sun. I couldn't resist putting a food macro in with all the food being photographed in this side challenge.

Great idea and great shot! I didn't recognize it as a lime.

This is very cool Sean! It looks like sea weed floating around in water. And I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' kteach about a little curves adjustment to boost contrast a bit.

Wonderful lime with nice backlight. As ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' kteach already mentioned, it's just as if something is missing here. Perhaps it's just the idea. Seeing a photo of lime and sun, you expect sparkling bright light, cool water and sunny beaches (living with the cold, the rain and not much sun at the moment)

Nice designs within the lime. Good shot.

Wow.. that's quite close! I like how this has the lime color, yet still is a bit see through with the backlighting. I enjoy abstract macros that don't really have any main focal point, but I feel like this is lacking somehow. Perhaps a levels or curves adjustment to take away some of that flat, grey feel? A bit more sharpening? Or shooting it with the center of the lime arranged in the corner so that you can see the circular pattern more? Just a few ideas.
